Oh Emma, Oh Kate.

Emma: Let’s take a shower, Kate!

Kate: Yeah! Naked time!


Kate: Mommy. You are the best mommy in the whole world.

Me: Thanks, Kate!

Kate: Open this. (throws jolly ranchers in my lap)


Me: Oh no. Scott, Gabby (niece) ruptured her ear drum.

Scott: What?! How did she do that?

Kate: Gabby be ok, dad. Doctors got it.


Walking in the house after school.

Emma: Take your shoes off! Take your socks off! Take your coat off!

Kate: Take your clothes off!


Backing out of the driveway, taking Emma to school.

Kate: Oh! Finally! Out of the haunted house!


I walked in our office. Kate is sitting at the desk, drinking my coffee.

Me: HEY! You can’t drink that!

Kate: But coffee is double double deeee-wishous!


Me: Hi Kate. You are my little blondie. How did you get daddy’s blonde hair? Why can’t you have my dark hair?

Kate: Uh. Well it turns black like yours in the bath.


I was walking out of the gym with Emma and Kate.

Kate: Hey wait! Do I have panties on, mom? (Pulls open the back of her skirt.)

Me: What?! Yes! Kate! Shhh!

Kate: Just checking. Feel like I no have panties on.


Walking in gym parking lot.

Me: Ahhh, feels like spring out. I love it.

Emma: Wait, is it spring?

Me: No, it’s still winter. It’s just a warm winter day.

Emma: (sniffs) Yeah, smells like spring too.


We were getting girls ready to go over our friend’s house. Scott and I were going over rules at other’s houses.

Kate: Got it. No crying, no screaming.

Scott: Correct.

Kate: Uh…but we can laugh, right mom?


Emma: Guess what kind of toy I picked out from the dentist?

Me: Hmmmm….tell me.

Emma: It starts with an R. It also has an I-N-G in it.


Me: Let’s go to the post office, Kate.

Kate: No! Police officer put you in jail!

Me: Ha. No, the POST OFFICE. Like where the mailman is. Police officers protect you. They don’t put you in jail. Only the bad people.

Kate: Yeah, police officers bite you if you’re bad.


Me: Kate, where did you find this skirt at?

Kate: Uh, my bucket.

Me: Dirty clothes?

Kate: Yeah.

Me: But it’s dirty.

Kate: I like dirty.


Caught Kate drinking my coffee again.

Me: Really? My coffee?

Kate: Really. De-wishous coffee today, mom.


Kate: Princesses don’t have butts.

Me: Oh really? How do they poop?

Kate: HA! Princesses don’t poop!


Me: Kate, here. Let’s wipe your nose.

Kate: No, just do this (sniffs hard) and it goes away.


The girls were fighting in the car. Driving me crazy.

Me: GIRLS! If you don’t knock it off, I’m going to turn this car around and dump you at the house.

Emma: Mom. I’ll just get into the sugar if you leave me by myself.


Eating quesadillas with the kids.

Kate: I want cream.

Me: Sour cream? Here you go.

Kate: I pretend it’s glue.


Me: Girls! People are coming over tonight! Let’s pick up!

Emma: Who?!

Me: Aunt Jenna and Uncle Steven!

Kate: Uhhhh…what about baby Jenna? (Jenna is pregnant)


Kate sneezed all over her breakfast.

Me: Hey girlfriend! You need to cover your face when you sneeze, please.

Kate: No. You’re supposed to bless me.


Kate: Let’s call Emma!

Me: No, we can’t. She’s in school right now.

Kate: Her teacher have a phone.

  1. Ha, the “I love you – do this” classic. My family always goes, “I love you” “What do you want?” ^.^

    And you should threaten to leave the girls with the coyotes, my mom always used to say that to us when we were rowdy in the car!


Ok, now it's your turn - write me back.
